Skeletal muscle atrophy: Discovery of mechanisms and potential therapies

Scott M. Ebert, Asma Al-Zougbi, Sue C. Bodine, Christopher M. Adams

Abstract

Skeletal muscle atrophy proceeds through a complex molecular signaling network that is just beginning to be understood. Here, we discuss examples of recently identified molecular mechanisms of muscle atrophy and how they highlight an immense need and opportunity for focused biochemical investigations and further unbiased discovery work.
